Five for Friday

Linking up with some great gals today to share my 5 for Friday!


I am hosting my very first giveaway on the blog this week.  It has been so fun to see people get excited about the giveaway and share my blog with lots of their friends.  I loved being able to put together a little basket of my favorite things!  Can't wait to find out the winner later today!



I did something this week I never thought I would do.  I joined the local YMCA.  My great friend Kristi is a member and we decided we could meet up at the gym afterschool for some friend time!  It has been a week and I have really enjoyed getting a little workout in on the way home.  I am by no means a workout guru but its more moving than I have been doing!  Here we are after our first friend workout!


Last weekend I met up with 3 of my forever friends for our annual Christmas gathering and a little birthday celebrating!  It is always so good to be with people who know you inside and out.  Our time together was full of gift giving, laughter, yummy food and just all around fun.  We even made a little trip to the Harrah's Casino for lunch to celebrate Beth's birthday!  Love these gals!


I had been wanting to go to our local Wine and Design place for a while and was glad to organize a little girls night out with some great gals.  We had such a good time painting and catching up.  Such a fun group of girls.  Hope we will be able to do something again soon!  Here are our finished masterpieces!


Thursday afternoon I came home to a little surprise in my mailbox. Don't you love that?  I had forgotten I had ordered some great bracelets.  When I opened the envelope I was so excited.  I love them!  I am especially fond of the black bracelet with the 3 gold charms.  I can't wait to layer these up with some other pieces I have!  I do love some great arm candy!  :)

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  Be on the lookout for the Giveaway winner on Saturday morning!  So excited!
